Steph McGovern has had to have her ring removed by firefighters after trapping her finger in a door, causing it to become severely swollen.

The host of Channel 4's Steph's Packed Lunch had to enlist the help of firefighter staff to have the ring cut off at Harrogate Fire Station in North Yorkshire.

The presenter took to Twitter to share photos of the injury, alongside the caption: "Eventful morning…..started with trip to @FireHarrogate to get a ring cut off swollen finger I'd trapped in door……thanks so much to Matt @TurnerTurner11, Lisa @Arcticwolf31, Dave + James for sorting it out! Straight after had to take my daughter for first ever day at nursery."
